Centre label on record states: 'Banded for airplay'

A Python Production for Charisma Records
(P)1973 Arista Records, Inc.

Album originally released in 1973.

Track titles with timing printed on the labels.

The sleeve is die-cut and printed to look like a three-dimensional box. The center window of the sleeve reveals a 'tie & handkerchief', but when one pulls the inner sleeve out, the unfortunate current owner of the tie & handkerchief is revealed.

Additional library recordings provided by Keith Prowse Music Ltd. and De Wolfe Ltd.

This issue does not have the 3-sided pressing gimmick.
